Gray — co-host of the popular Ben and Kerry morning show on CJXY Y108 in Hamilton, ON died in a hospice facility in Red Wing, MN. His career also included stops at WEQX Manchester/AlbanyNY, KBCO Denver and WEDG 103.3 FM in Buffalo.
"He went peacefully in his sleep," according to his former Hamilton broadcast partner Ben McVie. "He had been battling brain cancer for about a year."
Gray, a native of Dearborn, Mich., recently settled in Minnesota working at Red Wing radio station KWNG 105.9 FM while being treated nearby at the world famous Mayo Clinic.
McVie, who still works the morning show at Y108, said he last visited Gray about four weeks ago.
"I went down to see him and, unfortunately, the day I got there he took a turn for the worse," McVie said.
